Big Verdict Against Gainesville Apartment Complex for Injuries From Fall

By / 0 Comments /

The Gainesville Law Office of Alba & Yochim P.A. obtained a jury verdict of $666,024 for an injured client against a large local apartment complex and its property management company in Alachua County Circuit Court on Wednesday, January 9th, 2013. This recovery was more than four times the Defendants’ offer to settle prior to trial.

The client, who was represented by Gil Alba and Mike Sawyer, had fractured his right foot and essentially destroyed his left ankle, requiring multiple surgeries and the need for an ankle fusion in the future, when he fell from a second floor balcony at The Frederick Gardens Apartments to the asphalt below. The railing on which he leaned had been reported as broken 3 times previously in a 6 month period and broke again on this occasion causing him to fall.

Mr. Alba and Mr. Sawyer obtained for their client around $200,000 in future lost wages, $200,000 in medical expenses (past and future) and $200,000 in pain and suffering damages. Mr. Alba and Mr. Sawyer were able to overcome the Defendants’ allegations of comparative fault. The Defendants essentially alleged that the client was at fault himself, either because he knew of the previous repairs or because he jumped from the balcony- based on an inconsistent confusing statement in his hospital records. The jury found the client was not at fault at all.
